After I asked Sun to escalate our case a few weeks ago, we received
a binary fix for the fcntl bug for Solaris 8 and 9. It was not a patch,
just a tarball.
Last fall, users were taking 5 - 10 minutes to download XP profiles
with samba 2.2.5, but only 10 - 20 seconds with samba 2.0.6, with
500+ connections per server.
With the kernel binary fix, samba 2.2.7a is just as fast as 2.0.6.
Sun it releasing T-patches - T112233-04 for Solaris 9 and
T108528-19 for Solaris 8. We will be trying these out in the
next few days.
